This soul was born for battle
My heart was built for war
These eyes see through the lies
Filled with disgust

Strip back the utopian rhetoric
And you'll find a sickness at the core
A septic carcass rotting out
Filedl with disgust

We are the dead
Empty lives, empty heads
Guilty is as guilty fucking does
Filled with disgust

All we have to believe are the lies that they feed us
All we have to choose is the right to obey

Pray this time will be our mark on history
When the shadow games and agendas
Are wiped the fuck away

There is no such thing as different shades of truth
It's black or white, do or die
Filled with disgust

You tie your noose with your lies but the world keeps turning
"Swing low" we cry but the world keeps turning
Turning without you

It keeps turning without you

'Cause all we have to believe are the lies that they feed us
Born for battle
All we have to choose is the right to obey
Built for war

This soul was born for battle
My heart was built for war

Swing motherfuckers

End it

Built for war
Built for fucking war

    My InterpretationThis song can be summed up from this quote from Winston himself via Alt press "Use your head. Open your eyes. Think for yourself. That’s pretty much it. Western society has grown faster than anyone could have imagined, and yet we still have to evolve to a means of governance that rises above human greed and corruption. Changes need to be made, but we hold faith in systems that effectively remove the power from the masses."

    I am assuming when the lyric of "You tie your noose with your lies but the world keeps turning
    "Swing low" we cry but the world keeps turning
    Turning without you"

    He is talking about the metaphorical noose the system ties around all of our necks. Or it could be about the karma that is going to be coming for those in power using these selfish and corrupt means.
